Welcome to this day in history class from how stuff works dot Com and from the desk of stuff you missed in history class. It's the show where we explore the past one day at a time with a quick look at what happened today in history. Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Tracy Wilson it September Twenty Third Victoria woodhull was born on this day in eighteen thirty eight. She was the first woman to run for president in the United States fifty years before the ratification of the nineteenth amendment eighty women the right to vote nationwide she was from Ohio named Victoria Claflin after Queen Victoria her family also called her little queen because she was very proud and she Had An uncanny ability to concentrate her family background was also a little odd her father buck Claflin had a whole range of jobs and schemes to try to make money. He decided to take advantage of the growing interest in spiritualism and to set Victoria and her sister Tennessee up as mediums to have them travel around as a sort of spiritualist medicine show they had varied and chequered career as spiritualists and mediums Victoria got married. In the middle of all this, and that's where she got the last name woodhall she eventually though divorced him and married someone else and kept the last name Woodhall, which was highly scandalous in eighteen, sixty eight, a purported vision lead would and her family to move to New York City where she and her sister continued to work as clairvoyance. One of their clients was Commodore Cornelius. Vanderbilt who gave them investment advice which worked out Very well for them later on, he financially backed the two you sisters opening up their own brokerage firm which made them the first women stockbrokers on Wall Street. This made a lot of money would hole was finally able to do something. She had wanted to do for a long time which was to focus on social reform really hard as a woman to be a social reformer unless you also had money to support your work. In April of eighteen seventy started publishing a series of articles in the New York? Herald including one where she announced her candidacy for the presidency. It was expected that Republican. President Ulysses s grant was going to run for reelection. She knew she was not at all likely to earn the Democrats nomination. So to run for president, she would need to nominate herself and get enough support to make it onto the ballot. So she bought a newspaper the newspaper obviously endorsed her candidacy. She also moved to Washington DC and started working as lobbyists and she befriended Congressman Benjamin Butler together. The two of them worked out this argument that there needs to be a constitutional amendment giving women. The right to vote that women already did have the right to vote under the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments. She was allowed to deliver that argument before Congress on January eleventh eighteen seventy one making her the first woman to do so although suffrage ists were very interested in hull and she was invited to join the National Woman Suffrage Association Women's suffrage wasn't really her key political issue. She was a lot more focused on education reform and assistance for the poor and reforms of marriage laws so that men and women were equal partners something that was described at the time as free love is not at all the free live of the hippies. She gave a speech about this free love idea on November twentieth of eighteen seventy one in this absolutely tanked her candidacy. It was viewed as too radical and immoral, and she was widely denounced most of the separatists cut ties with her only the most radical stayed by her side and helped her found the equal rights party which nominated her for president in eighteen seventy two also nominating Frederick Douglass President though he declined that nomination at this point though things were really falling apart. For Victoria, Woodhall, all the controversy lost her clients on Wall Street and her stockbroker business failed and. She lost all of her many. Then she tried to stop a big scandal with her sister involving Catharine, beecher and Harriet, Beecher Stowe, and their brother. This didn't get them anything positive Victoria and Tennessee wound up being arrested for distributing indecent material through the mail. So on election day they were in jail. That's a pretty unspectacular end of the campaign for the first woman to run for president, and there is some debate about whether her candidacy even really counts. The constitution requires presidents to be at least thirty, five years of age and Woodhall turn. Seventy five on September. Twenty third eighteen, seventy three, which was nearly ten months after the election and six months after inauguration day of Eighteen, seventy three.

"W N Y C. I'm Jamie Floyd 100 years ago Today, women gained the right to vote when the 19th amendment was ratified. Victory came after many women had endured prison, conducted hunger strikes and marched and picketed for years. But today there remains work to be done for many women who are still disenfranchised at voting booths across the nation. A new site. The 19th nonprofit newsroom with staff of mostly women wants to empower more people, mainly women of color to finish that work by reporting that focuses on the issues we face. Joining me today CEO and co founder of the 19th, Emily Ram Shaw and editor at large. Erin Haynes. Welcome to you both. Thank you. Thanks. So much for having Emily what coverage gaps in the mainstream media. Are you seeing? That drives you to seek to start your own newsroom? Sure, so this started for us really? You know, four years ago during the 2016 election cycle when I was sort of looking at so many questions around electability and likability during the presidential election, featuring the first woman presidential candidate, and it just felt like a moment then and it feels like an even bigger moment. Now we're still asking those same questions that for us seem very gendered, very sexist. No, we are presenting coverage that really tackles all issues through a gender lens and seeks to give women an equitable seat at the table in the nation's media coverage. And it's interesting that you mention Hillary Clinton, of course, who ran for president and lost in 2016, but she wasn't indeed the first We've had Victoria Woodhull going all the way back to 18, 72 and other women who've run for president, underscoring the ways in which we still strive for power in this country, but somehow seemed to fail eyes that part of your mission trying to unpack and unravel. Ah women and our effort to achieve equality at the voting booth and in the corridors of power. Absolutely, if for us the importance of the 19th is that women are disproportionately affected in so many arenas that we intend to cover. Whether it's the role of women in this cove. It induced she session or the role of women on the frontlines of our health care system. But no Where do we think it's more important to highlight this coverage? Then in the halls of Congress and in the halls of state legislatures in the highest office in the land, where we still in this modern day, see women at such a disadvantage? Aaron. Lots of women are still disenfranchised women who've been in prison, for example. Are you hoping that your coverage will lead to an expansion of voting rights for women? Our newsroom is absolutely one that committed to the expansion of democracy and make this a more freer and fair society. I mean, we're marking the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, for which our newsroom is very probably named, Put an asterisk and that's intentional because the omission in a racer of black women from the suffrage movement was intentional, and so in honoring this landmark legislation We're not only above all honor those who were denied that, But we recognize that this is unfinished work that continues and we certainly want to be part of completing that work. I really want to dive into this debate over how we remember the history of suffrage in this country. Because, as you say, Erin, it was not just a movement of white women, which is how it is often remembered and portrayed. Even at the time, many white suffragist did not see black women as allies or as a priority. On yet you've named the publication the 19th with that asterisk. So So how should we wrestle with that history? And how will you reflect this history in your mission in your staffing in your coverage each ofyou police take that on. Maybe Emily you first. Sure the asterisk is the lens through which we think about all of our coverage, which we think about building this newsroom in this moment. No 75% of our journalists are people of color. We are really trying to practice what we preach standpoint of building a newsroom that truly reflects America's women. So Aaron I struggle with this as a black woman journalist that Intersectionality as A person who cares deeply about race but also about women and our rights. How do you resolve or wrestle with those issues? Well, Jamie, I will tell you It has definitely been a journey for me as well. And somebody that that most of my career writing about the intersection of race In culture and politics and it really it wasn't until I came to the 19 that I was really able to grant the totality of my lived experience to the newsroom and to this work, right? And so being able to think of the dual identities that I carry in approaching, the work has been revelatory. For me. It has been very refreshing, you know, but the Astors for us is also So much about who is not being seen who is not being heard and really reflecting the marginalized in our community so that we can really make this a home for all women. When I hear you say the marginalized Of course that goes well beyond gender, I think about the marginalized, disable Tio trans community people who are imprisoned. I mean, I could go on the conversation can only be a few minutes here on all things considered. But can you say a little bit more about the communities? You hope to serve Jamie? Everybody that you just said, and You know, one thing that is so amazing about the vision that Emily had for this newsroom. Is that kid born not only to be able to reflect these women, but also to bring this news To these women wherever they are right? And so what That means is that we are producing journalism that is free to consume and free to republish under our nonprofit business model, and it's not enough to just have these Women reflected in our coverage if they never even get to see it behind the pay Walter to read what we said about them. And finally, I noticed that your mission or part of the mission of the 19th is to create A platform for civil conversation at a time when we have very uncivil discourse in our country, and that you you're seeking to build community. What's the goal there? Most newsrooms really don't prioritize civil conversation and community building. Why is that a priority for you? You know, I personally believe that if the same women are talking to the same women all the time, we don't move the needle. So for us, it's really critical that conversations are civil and empathetic and thoughtful. For us. That's where all of it begins. That's where our community begins. Emily Ram Shaw is CEO and cofounder and Aaron Hands is editor at large of the new site, 19th. Thank you both so very much. Thank you, for including us. Thank you so much for having us. With no crowd and very few life segments. This year's Democratic National Convention is pretty much appear TV event Last night was the.

"At last asked he had arrived to reveal his identity to her because the time had come for her to lead her people just as he had the ancient Athenians journey to New York. The spirit told her there was a house waiting for her there along with the future. He'd always promised at least. That's how Victoria told the story that marble marble table had been in a Pittsburgh apartments where Victoria had been stain. After years of traveling with James Blood she had even been to disease-stricken New Orleans arriving justice just as core left and shortly before Christmas in eighteen sixty six Victoria and James had published an advertisement for their powers of healing to the city's alien residents since they'd been to Memphis Tennessee which had also been plagued by white supremacists violence that year. Then they returned to Saint Louis before moving on to Chicago Go where the courts were more willing to hand out divorce papers than anywhere else in the mid West but now in eighteen sixty eight. Those trips were coming to an end. It was time for Victoria and James to build something. They weighed their options. Following the spirit of Demosthenes to New York was one but there was. There's another leading light. That they considered Victoria reached out to some friends. In high places she traveled to Galena Illinois and visited one of the officers who had commanded. He ended James Bloods troops during the war. Since then Victoria and James had spent time with that officers father in Cincinnati and become friends with his family and Victoria. I thought it would be nice if he took on James Blood as his personal secretary. Because you see that man was ulysses grant and he had just won the presidential election and he was headed to Washington. We can't blame him if he didn't want to bring blood with him to the White House. Though you see. His escapades with Victoria had already hit the papers. Where they were saying that the gallant colonel had abandoned his family and thrown away his money to travel the world with and I quote the witch of Washington Avenue when grant decided against taking James Blood with him? It settled the matter James Than Victoria. Set Out For New York instead but the choices that grant would make while in office would still prove crucial to lifting. Victoria's fortunes I though there were connections to be made in Manhattan. Here's author Mary. Gabriel when they arrived in New York you know they had no connections there and it was as you say. The entire Claflin clan followed and saw Victoria antennae. Got To work doing what they did best. They're only sure way of making money which was working spiritualists. Antennae was an expert of laying on of hands and Victoria was the spiritualist adviser and but Claflin did what he did which was go out and try to recruit clients. New York had plenty of possible subjects. Spiritualism was strong in the the city after all but it wasn't just spiritualism that interested Victoria. She didn't want to spend her days entertaining a line of tourists. She wanted to finally put her political vision vision into practice for that. She needed a patron a dedicated supporter with money. And there was one person whose name was floating around the city with the echoes of cash. Following after it Cornelius Vanderbilt. His is a name. Many of us have heard before his shipping empire had brought him mountains. Sins of cash. But in the years before Victoria arrived he had felt the sting of personal losses. His wife Sophia had recently died and he'd lost a fortune in in a battle with a fellow. Wall Street speculator over control of Western railroads. All of this was well known. But Victoria's father but Claflin and the rest has to the clan. That was settling in New York. Learn something else through their spiritualists network. Cornelius Vanderbilt was willing to hear from the spirits. Spiritualism may have come into Vanderbilt's life through his daughter who had been a believer for years by eighteen sixty four cornelius was trying to contact the spirit of his dead father through New York City mediums by eighteen sixty eight. He was feeling old himself and had already been turning to magnetized and spiritualist healers for relief from his aches and pains so when Victoria and her sister Tammy arrived in New York. The wealthy industrialist found comfort in a young woman whose mode healing was the laying on of hands soon. The sisters were spending a lot of time with Cornelius. The often invited tenny to his office and called her. His little little sparrow while she joked with them read to him and laid on hands in Victoria. He got a personal medium then as their conversations multiplied lied he found in her an unusual and inspiring energy and intelligence he also started to hear investment advice from the spirits and he would give its intern along with hefty fees for their services. Here's more from Mary. Gabriel and so became confidence of Cornelius Vanderbilt. One of the most important and wealthiest man in America. And you know it's one of these incredible American stories that you know. They went literally overnight from being no one in New York to being with in the circle. Where all the powerful decisions are made? Demosthenes hadn't steered her wrong. And neither had cornelius. James Blood took the money Victoria made from Vanderbilt and invested it. According to his advice and as those investments blossomed James News and Victoria put their heads together to decide how they could put this growing fortune to use the spirits. It seems weren't just ghostly visitors from another world world they also knew. Just what made this world go round Trouble was brewing in eighteen. Sixty eight the banner of light published a report from the Third Annual Convention of the Illinois State Spiritual Association with a foreboding warning. They said that there was an a quote. Lack of harmony among spiritualists for a movement built on the foundation of Andrew. Jackson Davis Hormonal Philosophy. This was a dangerous thing to hear. Every seance required harmony among the participants in order order for the spirits to be heard and if they hope to keep growing into an enduring cultural force they would need that harmony. The reformers might have seemed seem to win the day and motivate the victorious army through four long years of war. They might even have been able to claim legions of new converts as the Widows and mourning. Earning mothers found their way to the sand table but their new world had not yet clicked into place in fact cities all across the country were still filled with conflict And that included the capital but with President Grant and office. There were some among the reformers who saw a clearer path into the future in eighteen. Sixty nine sojourner truth was headed back to Washington. DC To be present for the ratification of the fifteenth amendment. Finally ensuring that black men had the right to vote to cross across the entire nation on the way there. She stopped in New York City where she stayed with friends. Including a visit to Leeann underhill's thirty Seventh Street Brownstone and although she had retreated from the public stage Lia had lost no stature among spiritualists and would still give private sittings too friendly visitors especially when have visitor was sojourner truth she also stayed with Theodore Tilton the editor of a powerful liberal religious newspaper Tilton was well known for printing nineteen the power of God and the rhetoric of reform. He was a natural friend to sojourner but he and his wife Elizabeth were going to become very familiar with Victoria. Woodhall in the coming coming years. Also while in the city sojourner spoke at one of the most popular pulpits in the Nation Plymouth Church where the preacher Henry Ward beecher feature held court. The sojourner wasn't the only one on the road to Washington that year in January the city played host to the first national female suffrage Fridge Convention with money in her pockets and determination to join the cause Victoria. Woodhull was one of the many to arrive. There is hope in the air. You're with the war. One and grant elected surely it was time for every reformer who had served in the cause of abolition to now turn their interest toward the cause of women organizers. who expected it to be that easy? Though were deeply disappointed. Some leaders like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony wanted wanted to push for a sixteen th amendment that would give women the right to vote but others thought a more gradual approach that pushed for suffrage state by state was the only way to achieve if that goal and this difference in approach led to some ferocious arguments it seems that advocates for women's rights. Were no more united than the spiritualists were and no no surprise. They were often one and the same Victoria made her way back to New York thoroughly unimpressed to her. The battles between the reformers were what she called teacup. Hurricanes women needed to gain real ground and fast so she decided that at the first opportunity she would lead by example an and opportunity that swiftly came banks to Cornelius Vanderbilt and ulysses s grant. Here's more from Mary. Gabriel two of the biggest. You traders on Wall Street Jim FISK and and Jay. Gould knew that every week grant sold a lot of gold on the market to try to keep kind of keep the coffers Unisys discovers government coffers full and it was a weekly sort of release of precious metals to enrich the government few an acquaintance. They decided decided to try to convince grant not to sell. And so that would drive up the price of gold and it would become even more precious than it normally was well that happened but then grant learn of the scheme and so in a counter move. He opened the flood again and the gold started pouring out onto the market random bill bill had been privy to all of this and so he told tenny in Victoria. This was going to happen and so on the day. This black Friday and eight hundred sixty nine occurred Victoria was. They're buying hangup gold dropping in price dropping like a stone and in that day. She amassed a sizable fortune by the end of the day. Victoria antennae had made a stunning seven hundred thousand dollars in profit. Their names were splashed across the pages Queens of finance. It's Vanderbilt's proteges. With their new fortune as balanced Victoria antennae through open the doors of Woodhall Claflin and Co the first woman owned brokerage brokerage in the city Victoria would later rights. We had been instructed by the spirits in the administration of public affairs now. It was time to to apply that knowledge though then when it came to striking a claim for the place of women in society she said there could have been nothing else in legitimate business that would attract the comments of the the press more than the establishment of banking house by two women.

A few days before the election Woodhall and Claflin weekly, had published an account of an affair between a prominent minister, Henry ward Beecher, and Elizabeth Tilton.

Both the detractors and the supporters, but there were a lot of factors that actually help spiritualism catch on quickly. There was a recent Beth selling book called the divine principles of nature by Sierra. Andrew Jackson Davis. And that was based in turn on the writings of the eighteenth century philosopher in former podcasts subject Emanuel, Sweden Berg, and these writings seemed to predict the opening of communication with the spiritual world, so give people some something concrete to look good timing. It was very good timing. There was also popular interest in mesmerized them. Not might have helped pave the way in. We talked about that for last year's Halloween podcasts and. Another aspect which we've kind of in a strange way talked about two in the Victoria, Woodhull podcast spiritualism also supported reforms such as abolition and women's suffrage, which were really gaining steam at the time, and then one final thing going on at the time or one extra thing relating to new technology and finance the telegraph had become a central metaphor for spiritualism mediums where like, a spiritual. Telegraph no way. So you have this great concrete thing not just the book to look at. But a scientific p- a piece of technology to compare something that seems really abstract to. Yeah. They could look at it and say, hey, if you can talk in an instant to someone in a different city, why can't you talk to someone in the spirit world is easily. So there is a lot going on yet, and obviously bringing a lot of past podcast material together. So by eighteen fifty four according. To spiritualist estimates. The movement had somewhere from one to two million followers in the US. And as the movement grew the spectacles, just got more and more complicated. It wasn't just simple knocking or rapping noises anymore. There were phosphorus and glimmering clouds around people levitating furniture, heavenly music and something called spirit writing which occurred when a medium was in a trance, and then the spirit would try to communicate through her. She would actually write on a piece of paper or something a little more spirit sophisticated than the wrapping alphabet system. Yeah. It was definitely a more elaborate way to get your message across quickly that way. Yeah. But the FOX sisters were only getting more and more famous in all of this to they went to New York City.

We are coming up on the one hundred eightieth birthday of Victoria Woodhull who was born on September twenty third eighteen thirty eight. She ran for president of the United States before the nineteenth amendment prohibited denying citizens the right to vote because of their sex. This episode is from twenty eleven. It is much requested in it is from prior hosts, Sarah and the blame him. Enjoy. Welcome to stuff you missed in history class from how stuff works dot com. Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm to blame charcoal boarding and I'm doughty and we are barely right along through a mystery. So far we've covered a couple of women a pirate leader and a warrior Queen, for example, who both made a name for themselves by fighting against the establishment in this episode, however, we're going to take a look at one who sought to become part of the establishment and kind of effect change from within kind of the biggest part of the establishment exactly in by that. We mean we're about to talk about Victoria would hole the first woman to run for president of the United States. Yeah, and her bid for the presidency was really remarkable, and that's not just because it happened almost fifty years before women even have the right to vote the legal right to vote. It was miraculous Kush. She had this really sketchy Pash. She basically came out of nowhere. The previous entry on her resume before presidential candidate was clairvoyant. That's something you're unlikely to see. And in a couple years, she became the leading voice. In the women's rights movement. So a remarkable biography. Yeah, you could probably do an entire series on just all the details of her really unconventional turbulent. Sometimes kooky downright kooky life, but we're mostly going to focus on the meteoric rise that led to her nomination for president. And of course, the scandal that caused it all to go horribly wrong and you'll see the it really makes today's nominees for the most part, not in all cases, but for the most part look pretty tame bland. Yeah, certainly their names, the names in this podcast are going to be great. I just wanna get you psyched up for that and you know by saying that she's exciting, we're not just talking about in terms of the scandal. Even her background is really fascinating and unique. So we'll get into that a little bit. I she was born Victoria Claflin on September twenty third eighteen thirty eight in Homer, Ohio, and her mom any Claflin named her after. The then eighteen year old Queen of England keeps popping up in Victoria. So Victoria Claflin was the fifth of seven living kids. And while she was growing up, her family had a lot of financial struggles. She didn't really let that get to her though. She was still very confident kid and she kind of held court on this with her family, no telling stories to the other kids, and she was really smart. She had a photographic memory and they're, you know, we we should mention too because this comes into play later that her intelligence was not educated intelligence. She'd she only went to school from ages eight to eleven. She was just a a smart quick learning kid. Yeah, and that's all that's all the school when she had the opportunity to get at the time we should say. But she was nicknamed little Queen because of her proud demeanour and her she would intensely concentrate on things. So people thought that was very Queen leg crooner just like Madam to pump door, very similar. Her. Bad, but Claflin was kind of a rascal who just hopped from job to job. I think he had something like a dozen jobs, but eventually his grand get rich scheme was to start calling two of his daughters, Victoria in Tennessee spiritual mediums and set them up as the traveling spiritualists medicine show, which sounds like a really off the wall idea. But it wasn't quite as out there as it seems because buck had heard about this other pair of sisters from New York, Kate and Margaret FOX, and they had earned huge amounts of money working as these traveling mediums. And there was, you know, at the time this growing interest in spiritualism, I think that's something that comes up in the podcast from time to time to in women were very important in that movement, partly because it gave them influence. If you're speaking is a medium, nobody is really holding you responsible for what you said. Not quite at least. So you know you could get away with some
"victoria woodhull" Discussed on The Nicole Sandler Show
"So I bring this whole story to life in the play, what's different about the full cast version of she and I'm calling. She is history just to differentiate from the solo play, is that you know, these are all these? Are we on stage where we're doing scenes? I mean, you are seeing these women live their lives. We're watching Elizabeth Katie, STAN and Susan b. Anthony work on the fourteenth amendment. And the big thing about the fourteenth amendment was that it was the first time our constitution had the word male in it, and you know, Elizabeth Katie Stanton and Susan, b, Anthony and Victoria Woodhull first woman to run for president. They had lobbied congress for years saying, hey, women have the right to vote. It's in the constitution, all citizens born or naturalized in the United States, our citizens and citizens have the right to vote. But if you put the word male in there that we're excluded, I mean, they, we had to make an amendment to to free the slaves and the women worked really hard on the thirteenth amendment. They work really hard and organize it. So during, you know, during the war they they were right there. And then the fourteenth amendment comes along and Elizabeth Katie Stanton and Susan b, Anthony like, okay, you know, we, it's our turn to vote and many of the men from the abolition move. And many of the women said, you know what? It's really not your turn yet. Let's get the freed black slaves. The men black male slaves, the right to vote, and then we'll get to you. This split the women's movement for like fifty years and and a lot of the women, the Lucy stones and the grim KE sisters. And you know, they said, okay, we'll wait it. You know, because one of the leaders of the abolition movement, Wendell Phillips who was a big supporter of the women. He said it is the hour of the negro, so and I do this is a really good scene to me. It's like almost the heart of the whole play because the, you know, Elizabeth Katie Stanton who was partners with Susan b. Anthony, the greatest partnership in women's history. They said, no, fuck that shit. Basically we want our rights and so split the movement and they fought really hard. And you know it took until nineteen twenty. This was eighteen sixty eight or eighteen sixty one right after the civil war when they started lobbying for the right to vote and they had away till nineteen twenty because they couldn't come together on this. It has been such a battle as Bill. Abs- says a battle for equality, and it was added. Vet got women's equality day to be day that we actually celebrate. She's the one that that had congress passed. You know this, this make this day a a resolution. She introduced a resolution to congress. You know, she was the whole force behind it. Now, the nineteenth amendment also was called the Susan b, Anthony amendment. And you know, it's just like the torch gets passed. Alice poll is, you know, very much part of the nineteenth amendment. She's the one who wrote the equal rights amendment, right? She wrote it. She wrote that in nineteen twenty three. And she went to, Seneca falls in nineteen twenty three to celebrate. They had just recently won the nineteenth amendment. And that's when she introduced the equal rights amendment, which I almost always nervous to bring up the rights because your head explodes. But I wanna tell you because it's two thousand eighteen and we still don't fucking equal rights amendment. Yeah, I know I don't. I don't actually wanna say calm down to you because you know the reason we all we make any any progress anywhere is because we, we don't calm down pantley I did. I knew it was gonna come up. So I did a little research before our little chat today and we have one more state to go. Yeah, I know we have one more state Illinois outta so we're getting close. I mean, there's there's so much going on so much positive. I I know it's really hard, but you know, in the in the play, she's history this Sunday, August twenty six, seven thirty theater west here in Los Angeles. I tell a lot of these stories and one of them Bill adds, who is a congressman from New York, just a ball..
